In 1961, future president Ronald Reagan recorded a 10-minute talk about socialized health care. He said, “One of the traditional methods of imposing statis or socialism on a people has been by way of medicine. It’s very easy to disguise a medical program as a humanitarian project, most people are a little reluctant to oppose anything that suggests medical care for people who possibly can’t afford it.” Reagan said that “pretty soon your son won’t decide when he’s in school, where he will go or what he will do for a living. He will wait for the government to tell him.” Fast forward to today with the Biden and Democratic Party mandate that every American must have a COVID 19 shot.
The current government makes Reagan look like a prophet. Already in many places across the United States, American citizens are unable to attend public events, eat in restaurants, go to college, or freely travel without proof of having the COVID shot. If Biden and the Democrats have their way, American citizens will be forbidden to provide for their families and their children will not be allowed to go to school unless they have taken the jab. Do you see and fully understand the grave threat to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness by this statist oppression? If allowed, your right to privacy, to autonomy, to speech and freedom of worship, even what you wear, will be dictated by government. This mandate is an unparalleled assault on the very freedoms we hold so dear.
The 5th Circuit Court of Appeals temporarily stayed the Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s November 5 mandate that all businesses of 100 or more employees must require their workers to be COVID 19 vaccinated. The New Orleans federal court said the petition by various businesses and individuals “give cause to believe there are grave statutory and constitutional issues with the mandate.” The petitioners claim that OSHA does not have the authority for such an unprecedented mandate because it does not target dangers specific to the workplace; that the government does not have Constitutional authority to establish a nationwide vaccine mandate; that on June 21, OSHA explicitly rejected that all workplaces faced a grave danger due to COVID; and the mandate will have devastating impact on the economy.
We are facing a defining moment. While the temporary mandate stay is encouraging, we cannot rely just on the courts to protect our liberties as many judges are politically motivated and support a statist society. Your voice and your actions will speak to the courts and the politicians. What you put into your body is your business. Where you work is your business. What you eat is your business. What you think is your business. How you worship is your business. What you speak is your business. It is unconstitutional for the government, or any company acting on its behalf, to deny your rights. Don’t let the courts lull you to inaction. As in Jeremiah 6:14, “They have healed the hurt of My people slightly, Saying, ‘Peace, peace!’ When there is no peace.” There is no peace. Boldly speak and act now or you will truly know no peace.
